3 C Flour
½ tsp. Yeast
1 ¾ tsp. Salt
1 ½ C. Water
Mix 4 ingredients till combined. Cover with foil and let sit in a warm place for 12-18 hours.
Preheat oven to 450 when ready to bake. Place cast iron pot in the oven to warm for 30 minutes.
While the pot is warming, dump your dough out onto a floured surface. While it has been sitting, it has been turning into a wet, bubbly goo. So dump it out and dust it with flour. Turn it over a couple times just so it forms into a ball. Cover with a towel and let sit for up to 2 hours, or until your pot is heated. Then place the ball of dough into the pot.
Cover with lid and bake at 450 for 30 minutes. Remove lid and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
The bread should sound hollow when tapped.
You can add other ingredients to make an artisan-type bread.
